The Bean

Over the weekend, MJ and I traveled to Chicago to see Pearl Jam play at Wrigley Field with our friends Kris and Scott.  Let me just say the entire day was “EPIC”.  There were so many great times with friends and terrible, terrible, terrible hot weather and storms. 

While in Chicago, I stopped by to take a picture of Cloud Gate, which is commonly referred to as “The Bean”.  This stainless steel sculpture sits in Millennium Park and was designed by Anish Kapoor.  The original estimate for the sculpture was $9 million, but over runs and delays cost the city of Chicago approximately $23 million.  The sculpture was the source of controversy while under construction, but has become a source of pride for the city and a great attraction.  As you can see, it’s normally mobbed by people who come to see the reflection of themselves and the city.

Beautiful city, sculpture and vibe.
